Passionately Pursuing Justice for the Injured

Houston Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer

Seeking Compensation After a Property-Related Accident

Spilled products in the grocery store, uneven sidewalks, poorly lit stairwells, and other hazards are common, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the potential to cause serious injuries. Premises owners are obligated to keep their property reasonably safe for visitors. If you slipped and fell on someone else's property, you may have a viable premises liability claim and may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical expenses and other costs.

Who Is Eligible to File a Premises Liability Claim?

According to Texas law, property owners owe visitors a "duty of care," which is a legal obligation to warn or protect visitors from certain mishaps. This might include a slippery surface in a department store or an unmarked step. Some visitors may not be entitled to this protection, though.

Under Texas law, there are three types of visitors:

  • Invitees
  • Licensees
  • Trespassers

An invitee is any person who enters the premises with the owner's knowledge or implied permission. An invitee enters the premises for his / her benefit and the property owner's benefit. Store customers fall into this category. Similarly, a licensee enters the premises with permission from the property owner, but for his / her own purposes instead. This might include a guest at a social function.

Unlike invitees and licensees, trespassers do not have permission from the property owner to enter the premises. A trespasser is not entitled to compensation unless the owner purposefully causes an injury or is grossly negligent. If you did not enter property legally, you may not be eligible for any money to cover your injuries. Only invitees and licensees have the right to pursue compensation.

Do I Have a Slip & Fall Claim?

If a slip and fall accident occurs on a property owner’s land or on a business’s property, you may have a slip and fall claim. However, in order for the claim to be justified or valid, the slip and fall accident must have occurred because of the negligence of that landowner or business. Conversely, there are certain conditions that may leave the property owner or business not responsible for the injury.

Some of these reasons may include:

  • If the hazardous condition was blatantly obvious
  • If the property owner did not know about the hazard in a suitable amount of time
  • If the injury could have been avoided by the victim (i.e. If a person were jumping in a puddle on someone else’s property)
  • If the property owner or business posted signs or relayed information regarding the potential hazard

Although a person may be harmed on another person’s property, the property owner is not always responsible depending on how the injury was caused and what caused the accident.
